DT rivals say they can do job quicker and cheaper

5 Jan 2009

A group of alternative German telcos, including Telefonica Deutschland and E-Plus, have written to Chancellor Angela Merkel saying that they can deploy the country’s high speed internet network faster than Deutsche Telekom (DT). According to Financial Times Deutschland, the group says it can connect all unconnected households in half the time and at a lower cost than DT. They are also reported as being concerned about DT’s plan to raise rates charged for using its new network.
